June 28-July 1, 2013
We left New Hampshire (in the rain!!) but with a twist!!
|First time I have seen our rig going down the road!!|
Blueberry Pond Campground is a small family run campground and is really, really quaint. The road into the campground is quite something....tree lined dirt road (but with plenty of room for big rigs) that could be a bit spooky!
This was another Passport America CG and with full hook-ups, was a bargain at $21 a night. We would definitely return if we are in the area again.
The five of us piled in the car one day and headed to Freeport to do some walking around.

Let's hope he is not the only moose we see this summer!
We had our first lobster roll at Linda Bean's Perfect Maine Lobster. We were all in agreement that, although it was good, it wasn't what we could call perfect. We were expecting the lobster to be warm but it was chilled. Oh well - we will have over a month in Maine to find what we consider our perfect lobster roll! Heck - we may even try our hand at fixing our own lobster rolls!!
Dan and I went on a scooter ride to explore the coast of southern Maine. We headed towards Bath and then went skirting the coast. The fog quickly rolled in and the temperature got chilly! We meandered a bit and then found a place for a nice picnic lunch.....Fort Popham at the mouth of the Kennebec River. The fort was used in several wars and is now a state maintained facility.

|Androscoggin Swinging Bridge|
On the other side of the bridge, there was a rails-to-trail bordering the river. We walked this for a bit taking in the scenery and the smells of the trees. Not sure if they are Douglas Fir or Fraser Firs but the scent is amazing!
We enjoyed our time at Blueberry Pond CG but were excited to hit the road to our destination for the month of July....Bar Harbor, ME! It is going to be a busy, busy month!
